BP 1.6beta1 : activity_type in WordPress Backend (unset updated_profile)

Reported by: imath Owned by:
Milestone: 1.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.6
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch commit


In the new (and great) WordPress Administration activity menu, i've noticed that there was in the activity_type filter (selectbox) the item 'updated_profile'. But after some tests and reading the code,it seems the profile change are not tracked in activity recordings.

So i think, this type of activities should be unset. I tried to build some functions as a plugin to creates the activity recordings depending on the visibility of the profile field (if public, then it records an activity). So just in case, you can download the code from my dropbox

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.6

Good spot. After some searching, it turns out that the 'updated_profile' activity type was last used in BP 1.0.3 about three years ago (probably making it our longest regression that no-one noticed):

In a future version, we should reinstate the updated_profile activity type. I think imath's patch is the best approach for now. Another would be to remove the bp_activity_set_action() call, but that might break things for anyone who is using that activity type somehow.

I think imath's patch is the best approach for now.
